Mr. Jones Orphanage @ Thong Lor, Bangkok

Step into a whimsical world filled with all your childhood fantasies at Mr. Jones Orphanage. Located at Seenspace in Thong Lor 13, this dessert restaurant is decorated with vintage prints, fluffy teddy bears and toy soldiers, that might just reveal anyone's younger self. We stopped by this quirky cafe as part of our little cafe-hopping in Bangkok, and well, as you all might imagined, once we were inside, cameras were on burst-mode, girls going crazy over the teddy bears and guys relieving the nostalgia by playing war games with those toy soldiers.

You know what? This place is magical and so alluring that once you get in, you never want to get out. Thinking about Hansel and Gretel already? Let's go!


If there's abundance in Mr. Jones Orphanage, it is definitely the number of teddy bears, and cakes too. Don't missed out the chefs in action at their open kitchen (just next to the cakes display)!


At Mr. Jones Orphanage, get ready to be spoilt for choices. Their impressive cake creations (50B to 190B) range from their signatures - Custard Cow's Poo, Chocky Mud Pie and Mr. Jones Giant Marshmellow, to a wide variety of classic selections, like Red Velvet, Banana and Carrot Cake. Besides desserts, they serve soup and brunch, as well as alcoholic drinks (but that is definitely limited to grown ups). 


Their newest signature creation - Jone's Secret Cake (below) is worth mentioning. A beautifully layered chocolate cake topped with a thick layer of bittersweet chocolate coating and strawberry is served with vanilla ice cream and chocolate dusting. You wouldn't want to miss this.


Macarons come in special flavours at Mr. Jones Orphanage. Here's an interesting one - WASABI, but don't worry, the flavour is mild.


If you are in Bangkok, do drop by Mr. Jones Orphanage. There's a hundred and one things one can think of doing in here, besides taking lots and lots of photos, exploring the 'strictly-kids' section, sipping on tea and munching on biscuits, ours is definitely..

Yeah, snuggling bears.
